Using materials: Are their measurements accurate enough to ensure that everything is precise? How have they ensured that their product is strong and fit for purpose? Are they motivated enough to refine and improve their product? Do they persevere through different stages of the making process? Year 5 Challenging Can they compare the time of day at different places on the Earth? Can they create shadow clocks? Can they begin to understand how older civilizations used the Sun to create astronomical clocks? Can they explore the work of some scientists? (Ptolemy, Alhazen, Copernicus) © Focus Education 20143

4 Year 5: Will we ever send another human to the moon? Science Y5: Earth and Space describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky. WOW : Visit from a mobile Planetarium or set up a telescope. LC1 Could we describe the Earth and the Sun as space cousins? LC2 If the Earth and Sun are cousins, is the Moon a young nephew? LC3Can you explain why we have day and night? LC4How can we appreciate the distances between and the sizes of the Sun, Earth and Moon? LC5What can we learn about the solar system and the other planets in it? LC6Who was Neil Armstrong and what would you ask him if you met him? LC7How could you create a moon surface and create a moon buggy? LC8Reflection: Could you create a simulated moon landing and film it? Literacy Link: LC5 provides opportunities for children to complete a fact file on a chosen planet. They could also complete a set of questions they would ask Neil Armstrong (LC6). Numeracy Link: LC4 provides a great deal of opportunity for children to measure and use scale and create diagrams. Creative Art Link: Children to design and make a model to represent the moon surface and then to create a buggy. They will film this later as part of their reflection. © Focus Education Mokee Peter Joe is Murray coming Working Scientifically: compare the time of day at different places on the Earth through internet links and direct communication; create simple models of the solar system; construct simple shadow clocks and sundials, calibrated to show midday and the start and end of the school day; find out why some people think that structures such as Stonehenge might have been used as astronomical clocks.

5 Year 6: How can you light up your life? Year 6: Science and Art Knowledge, Skills and Understanding Year 6 Science: LightArt & Design Can they explore different ways to test an idea and choose the best way, and give reasons? Can they vary one factor whilst keeping the others the same in an experiment? Can they explain why they do this? Can they plan and carry out an investigation by controlling variables fairly and accurately? Can they make a prediction with reasons? Can they use information to help make a prediction? Can they use test results to make further predictions and set up further comparative tests? Can they explain (in simple terms) a scientific idea and what evidence supports it? Can they present a report of their findings through writing, display and presentation? Can they explain how light travels? Can they explain how the human eye sees objects? Can they explain how different colours of light can be created? Can they use and explain how simple optical instruments work?

Can they explain why they have chosen specific drawing techniques? Can they explain what their own style is? Can they use a wide range of techniques in their work? Can they explain why they have chosen specific painting techniques? Do their sketch books contain detailed notes, and quotes explaining about items? Do they compare their methods to those of others and keep notes in their sketch books? Do they combine graphics and text based research of commercial design, for example magazines etc., to influence the layout of their sketch books. Do they adapt and refine their work to reflect its meaning and purpose, keeping notes and annotations in their sketch books? Can they make a record about the styles and qualities in their work? Can they say what their work is influenced by? Year 6 Challenging Can they make a prediction which links with other scientific knowledge? Can they identify the key factors when planning a fair test? Can they explain how a scientist has used their scientific understanding plus good ideas to have a breakthrough? Can they use the ray model to explain the size of shadows? © Focus Education 20145

6 Year 6: How can you light up your life? Science Y6: Light recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them. WOW : Spend time in a blacked out room and consider how the eyes adapt and why it is difficult to see anything. LC1 How do we know that light travels faster than sound? LC2 How can you set up an experiment to show that light travels in straight lines? LC3How do your eyes work? LC4How can you use mirrors to see around blind corners? LC5Spend a small period of time being blind folded and see how successful you are at doing everyday things you take for granted? LC6Can you use water colour painting to create a landscape or still life painting which shows light and shadow? LC7Can you create a shadow puppet story and present it to others? LC8Reflection: Can you prepare a documentary entitled ‘Let’s Light it up’ which shows what you have learnt in this LC. Literacy Link: LC1 through to LC3 provide huge opportunities to link with literacy activities. LC7 provides opportunities to link with play- scripts based on shadows created with a range of objects which are photographed and then set to a story. Numeracy Link: There are opportunities to use very large numbers when considering the distance the Sun is away from the Earth and the speed at which light travels to Earth. Creative Art Link: LC6 provides opportunities to look at the work of several famous painters, including Constable and Cezanne giving particular attention to light, tone and shadow before attempting their own work. © Focus Education Possible Creative Art Link: LC3 provides additional opportunities for children to do close observational sketches of the eyes giving attention to proportion. Working Scientifically: decide where to place rear-view mirrors on cars; design and make a periscope and using the idea that light appears to travel in straight lines to explain how it works. They might investigate the relationship between light sources, objects and shadows by using shadow puppets.
